”I am human and liable to make mistakes”, Rahama Sadau Pleads to be readmitted into Kannywood

Kaduna born Actress Rahama Sadau was banned from the Hausa film industry (Kannywood), by the Motion Picture Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN)  on Sunday, 2 October 2016 due to an “offensive hug” in her appearance in a Hausa music video alongside a Jos based popular pop star ClassiQ. MOPPAN is a coalition of associations that set rules and regulations governing the conduct of film production as well as practitioners in Northern Nigeria.

Rahama Sadau has now written a letter to MOPPAN to apologize for her “misdemeanor” and plead that she be readmitted into Kannywood.

 

According to Premium Times, the actress wrote:

 

I am human and liable to make mistakes and as a daughter who stands to be corrected. I wish to plead and ask my colleagues, the executive member of all guilds, the entire people of the north and audience at large to forgive me”.

The body said they will meet on Friday to decide whether to accept or reject her apology, a spokesperson for the body said:

We are going to hold a meeting to discuss on the content of the letter and come out with a definite stand. It is not going to be automatic at all.

She told the media that she was not served the letter of suspension and she was not suspended. She also made a lot of comments that are not supposed to come from her.

 

 

Despite the seeming rise of Rahama Sadau’s career in the year that followed the ban, the actress has finally apologized.

TATU the movie: “A Case of Great Acting & Terrible Execution!”

When I saw the trailer for the Tatu movie, I was excited and thought it would be a breath of fresh air. It was different, kinda similar to the movies that we pay no attention to on Africa Magic… but still great in its own way. The summary was pretty cliche, but it still piqued my interest. I had made up my mind to see it when it was released in the cinemas.

The movie is a contemporary take on the classic African epic adventure story: a fast-paced action centred around the conflict arising from a mother’s quest to have a child and all the complications that follow. It features Segun ArinzeDesmond ElliotFunlola Aofiyebi-RaimiRahama SadauSambasa NzeribeGabriel AfolayanHafiz Oyetoro and Frank Donga amidst others.

Less than thirty minutes into the movie, however, I was utterly disappointed. The acting was excellent, no doubt. I enjoyed watching Gabriel Afolayan, and maybe it’s the Airtel ad rubbing off on me, but he was great. He overdid it sometimes, but overall, he was brilliant.

Sambasa Nzeribe

 

 

Then there was Sambasa Nzeribe, who practically had a non-speaking role, but still killed it. Rahama Sadau was a delight to watch and her acting was superb during the last hour of the movie.

Now, let’s get to what was wrong with the movie. Even though the acting was amazing, there was a lot of things that went wrong. First, there were a lot of irrelevant scenes in the movie. There were scenes where I couldn’t comprehend what was going on and scenes that I questioned the importance of. For instance, Sambasa’s character is supposed to be a protector to Rahama. Rahama flees the village, with help from her mother and a priest and then, he (Sambasa) is sent to bring her back. For some weird reason, he always found her when she was about to, or had just engaged in sexual relations, but couldn’t find her at other times.

Also, I think the movie was poorly researched. I was thrown off by the fact that, a movie that shows the life of nuns in training, depict the nuns making the sign of the cross in the right way. Even five-year-old Catholics know how to do this. The priest and the Mother Superior had long rosary beads hanging from their necks, which is not the norm. Do we even talk about the costumes for the nuns and the Mother Superior? The mother superior had a bright sequined outfit for all the scenes in the movie and acrylic nails seen in one of the scenes. It was absolutely terrible and took away from the beauty of the movie.

Notwithstanding, the set design for the movie was decent. I really liked the village setting and the effort made into building the sets. Also, the song played at the end of the movie, Kilimanjaro by Evelle, was great. I cannot say the same for the music effects in the movie, which was just like your typical old Nollywood effects.

In conclusion, Tatu was an average movie, but it would have been a lot better movie if the producers paid a little more attention to detail.

The whole misunderstanding between the two started as a result of Ali Nuhu not picking Rahama Sadau for a role in his film currently under production.

 

The development generated a lot of reactions among the fans of the two actors on the social media. Some of the fans blamed Sadau for the twist of the relationship alleging that she has been too arrogant to Ali Nuhu her godfather in the industry.

In an interview with The Guardian Life, Rahama Sadau talks about her childhood experience and the movie industry after she was banned from Kannywood. Read excerpts below

 

How was growing up in Kaduna?

It was a normal life, it has been very great and fantastic. I remember being a dancer in primary school and secondary school.

You’re quite young, 23? When you started acting really early how did your parents and your community first take it? Were they supportive?

No, especially my mum, because they thought the industry is not a good place for a young girl like me. But she has still been supportive. No matter how they try to keep us away from our dreams she still tries to support us because she is afraid of us falling into the wrong hands but at some point she was like no and I pushed for it.

 

 

Tell us about your Kannywood experience

I started acting in the year 2013. So far it has been great and it was my starting point. I am really grateful for it, I am thankful for what it has made me become today. I have lived in Kaduna all my life. Whenever I travel to any other state it’s for work.

You were banned from Kannywood, how did it affect your career at the time?

Well, it’s a stepping stone, I am grateful because it has opened a lot of doors because a lot of people didn’t know me until the ban happened. It’s not something good but I think it was just meant to be.

Do you feel that you did something wrong or deserved to be banned?

No, I can’t just touch someone and then they say I did something wrong. I think your religion and faith is between you and God. I grew up as a northern lady, I know my limitations and I know what I can do as a northerner and a Muslim. What I did should be at the liberty of the artist who shouldn’t be banned.

Did you ever find yourself turning down a script because of certain things you couldn’t do?

Yes, I have my limitations like I said, there are certain things I wouldn’t do because of where I come from and the religion I stand for. If I show that I am ignorant of things, I have family and I know what the people in the north are capable of, that’s why I am being careful.

How has your transition to Nollwood been so far?

Before the ban I had featured in many Nollywood films like The Light Will Come, and Sons of the Caliphate. There hasn’t been much difference working in Nollywood. Perhaps the people are different, and the environment, similar stories and cultures.

How difficult has it been for you to keep with your personal values?

It has been a bit difficult but I always try to stick to who I am and focus on the things that I need and work towards everything.

What are some core values you won’t compromise?

Growing up in the North has been a bit difficult when you are trying to be another person in another zone and another territory. I don’t feel comfortable when I dress in short clothes but I am cool with other things like opening my hair up.

How’s your schedule, do you get to do stuff that young women your age do like go on dates?

Yes, I am very busy but if I have time to sleep, then I’ll definitely create time for a date. I am a very boring person, I always stick to my laptop, watching movies but whenever my friends call me out on a date, we just go somewhere, it could be anywhere, have fun and come back.
